Excerpt and Giveaway: Kiss the Sky by Krista and Becca Ritchie

You guys. YOU GUYS. If you know me at all, you know that Connor Cobalt *fans self* is basically my hero. He is smart, charming, very educated (hello there, triple major!), wicked, extremely handsome, has a great sense of humor, is loyal, adorable and protects his loved ones. What's not to love?! So this thing happened today (well, actually yesterday ;)). His book was released. How excited am I? SO VERY EXCITED YOU HAVE NO IDEA. Lily, Lo, Ryke and Daisy will all be featured in it, but the main focus is on Rose and Connor. I had a chance to read the arc already, but haven't written a review yet. Why? Well, I honestly don't know what to say, because there are so many thoughts speeding through my mind. I will try to get around writing it this weekend and hopefully give you a piece of my mind next week. (And if you're going to ask, YES I DID ENJOY IT :)) Anyhow, you're here for the excerpt, right? I'm happy to share this with you and be sure to give your luck a try in the giveaway. You do not want to be left out on getting a chance to win this prize! Good luck, lovelies! x

Virgin. Sex addict. Daredevil. Alcoholic. Smartass … Jackass. Her five friends are about to be filmed. Reality TV, be prepared.
Rose Calloway thought she had everything under control. At twenty-three, she’s a Princeton graduate, an Academic Bowl champion, a fashion designer and the daughter of a Fortune 500 mogul. But with a sex addict as a sister and roommate, nothing comes easy.
After accepting help from a producer, Rose agrees to have her life filmed for a reality television show. The Hollywood exec is her last chance to revive her struggling fashion line, and boundaries begin to blur as she’s forced to make nice with a man who always has his way.
Twenty-four-year-old Connor Cobalt is a guy who bulldozes weak men. He’s confident, smart-as-hell and lives with his equally ambitious girlfriend, Rose Calloway. Connor has to find a way to protect Rose without ruining the show. Or else the producer will get what Connor has always wanted—Rose’s virginity.
**This New Adult Standalone Romance can be described as Friends meets The Real World. Expect fist fights, drugs, sex of varying degrees, crude humor and competitive alpha males. Definitely for mature readersaudiences only.

The excerpt

OH YOU GUYS. THIS SCENE *hyperventilates* THIS. SCENE. 
Oh, and don't ask who Scott is or what he's doing there in the shower room with these two. He just.. isn't worth the time to explain. *shudders* Safe to say we don't get along.

Meet the authors

Krista Ritchie has a clone...or someone who looks exactly like her. If she's not writing books with her twin sister, she's pouring over entertainment news and ingesting copious amounts of pop culture. She likes tennis, that thing called the TV, and beating Becca (her clone) on Sega Genesis. She created YA Book Exchange to combat her book buying addiction and started Nawanda Files, a YA Book Blog that features books into movies news, to share her love for all things bookish. Oh, and she does something called science. Whatever that is.
Krista & Becca Ritchie write New Adult books that make you cringe, gasp, and go ooh-la-la. (If you do that sort of thing.) They are currently working on the spin-offs and final books in the Addicted series.

  1. "My brain has never ditched me before, and like hell the first time would be because of a penis"

    *Jenny dies* I love Rose already! She's definitely my kind of girl, and I love that this situation is just bringing out her determined side. Penis or no, she'll remain coherent ;-) You and Nick both rave about this series, I really do need to give it a try. I find Rose and Connor appeal to me most, so I think I might just start with their book. Thanks for the excerpt Siiri, it completely made my day:)

  2. Gah Sirri you're killing me with this series. Every time I decide to let it go you pull out post like this or review and I go back to putting it on my to-read list. I'm so glad you're this excited for this book and I have no doubts you already garbed the book. This excerpt is hilarious. Thanks for sharing girl. :)

  3. SIIRI. I looooove your enthusiasm for this series. I am most definitely going to get started soon, then pick this one up. Great scene!

  4. This doesn't seem like a series I would read due to my age but I'm glad you enjoyed it! Might bookmark this for when I'm older, eh?

    Thanks for sharing, hun! <33

  5. Knowing your excitement for this series I just simply MUST schedule time to read this series (yes, it's come down to having to schedule books in!). I'm going to put it in for February. That scene definitely grabbed my attention, Siiri! :)

  6. I remember reading Addicted to You by these authors and I thought it was an average read due to the depth of the situation if you know what I mean. But this one and Connor sounds like an amazing character and you already have me sold on this series. Great excerpt Siiri! :D x

  7. I love how the excerpt is displayed with words that just make me NEED to read it even though I usually hate excerpts bc they are such a tease! EEK! I'm super duper excited to read this one! Lolz! For real, though!
